FISSAC will host its next webinar in June. This webinar will focus on the interactions between the highly predominant technical aspect of industrial symbiosis and the non-technical aspects, including social engagement and acceptance. Typically, the social dimension of industrial symbiosis refers to the need for firms to interact more extensively than is required for normal business practice. Topics will include concrete examples.

The precise date will be announced shortly in a save-the-date. To ensure you receive it, please make sure you subscribe.

The FISSAC consortium will be welcomed by Keraben in Valencia on 18 and 19 April for the sixth General Assembly. (more…)

Ecobuild is a key event for the build industry, which connects and inspires the entire built environment specification chain. It will take place from 6 to 8 March, at ExCeL in London, UK. (more…)

The purpose of this first multidisciplinary workshop will be to discuss together how companies in the construction and demolition sector can optimize their resources through the means of industrial symbiosis.

This is a participatory working session: attendees will have the opportunity to put their views on the table, and discuss together with other actors about new business models that promote the transformation of the construction sector towards more circularity.
